We're always recruiting!
Internews is looking for professionals to join the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster to respond to crises and emergencies around the world.
During humanitarian disasters people affected by the unfolding tragedy need more than physical necessities. They also have an urgent need for information. In the aftermath of a crisis, from earthquakes, to armed conflicts, survival can depend on knowing the answers to essential questions. Should I stay with my family or go for help? Where is the nearest health facility? What is the extent of the damage? Where can I get clean water? What are the symptoms of cholera? Is it safe to go back home?
To strengthen its immediate response capacity in emergency situations, Internews’ Humanitarian Information Project (HIP) has created a standing roster of humanitarian communication experts and media professionals.
In the event of a humanitarian disaster, this roster allows Internews to quickly assemble groundbreaking response teams that deliver professional, timely, reliable and well-targeted humanitarian communication solutions in the wake of humanitarian crises.
These teams will deploy within 24-36 hours of a disaster to identify and assist the local information ecosystem, support local media and help humanitarian responders understand, assess and address the information and communication needs of disaster affected communities.
Experienced and highly motivated individuals who understand the complex nature of humanitarian disasters and can enter those situations with a good sense of calm, resilience and humor are encouraged to apply to be part of the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster.
To apply to be part of the Humanitarian Media Roster, please select a position that interests you in the list above. You will be taken to a more detailed job description with instructions on how to apply through our online recruitment system.
